Team Hungry: The why behind our name
"BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO HUNGER AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS, FOR THEY WILL BE FILLED." MATT. 5:6
Hunger is a concept for something that can never be completely satisfied while here on earth. Hunger and thirst, as used in Matthew 5:6, describe an all-consuming craving, a desire, and a burning passion to satisfy a particular need. That hunger is a driving force in life that motivates, directs, and when not properly satisfied, brings about pain. In this context, Jesus uses the concept of hunger to bring about a greater meaning. If we crave, yearn, desire, and hunger for righteousness, we shall be filled. Team Hungry ultimately desires that people will hunger for a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. We hope that when young people discover what they are hungry for that it will become a lifestyle of giving back. We desire for all to realize that only Jesus Christ can satisfy a person’s hunger.
A Place To Come Home To
With a heart to give students in Coweta County a safe place to work, hang out, build relationships, and be invested in, Team Hungry is aiming to open Ruby’s Coffee House. The planned location is directly across the highway from East Coweta High School. Countless students, teachers, parents, school council members, and other community leaders are already on board with launching this project. Find out more about Ruby's here.
